I'd bought some clips many months ago intending to make a couple of binky clips with ribbon for my little guy but then he outgrew his need for the binky before I made them. I kept them handy so I could make a couple of binky clips for my new baby after she arrived. A friend started making crocheted binky clips so inspired by her I crocheted this up today. I really like how it turned out and it just used a scrap of yarn I had leftover from crocheting some dish rags. So cute! Now I just need to find another scrap of yarn to make another one to match her other binky!

Whipped up a couple of these for some girls that are graduating from high school tomorrow. I made them in the school colors of the colleges they will be attending. Included some highlighters and wrote "Hope college will be the highlight of your life!" Cheesy I know! Hope they will come in handy for corralling pencils and pens on their desks. College students still use primitive writing instruments right?
These would also make great end of the year teacher appreciation presents. If you would like some let me know!

A couple of weeks ago a friend contacted me and asked me to make a pair of booties for her month old baby girl. She sent me a picture of what she had in mind and this is what I came up with. I'd never crocheted a rolled rose before so that was fun to figure out. Also came up with a new pattern for a little leaf. I decided to make a matching headband as well. They turned out so adorable that I made another set so if you are going to a baby shower and need a gift let me know. The set is $20 and comes wrapped in a gift box. So cute!

Close up of one set
Made some origami boxes to package them in so they'd be ready for gift giving.

Had a friend request a grey ear warmer headband so I made one and then came across this blue/green variegated yarn so I made one in those colors as well. It'd been a while since I'd made one so I had to reinvent the wheel and figure it out. I guess I should write down the patterns I make up so I can easily make one again.
